Next Tuesday, not a PR but 35 seconds faster than my best on any other bike. Two Tuesday rides, two fastest Day Road loops ever. I first saw this frame during global meetings in late 2018. Holy it was gorgeous, but I couldn't get it until mid-2019 when I convinced the road bike team to let me have it.This bike was build by Ethan Moorhead, one of the instructors at SBCU. Zero rattles, perfect function, and incredible attention to detail. This bike was used exclusively for Specialized lunch rides.
I did about 2 lunch rides per week, from mid-2019 to early 2020, 45 km/week, so only about 1,300 km on this bike. "Like New" is a an overused term, but it's the closest thing to explain the condition of this bike.
Only marks are on the right side of the head tube (not sure from what) and on the left dropout from changing a flat and laying it it down on the roadside. Spectraflair paint is simply amazing and must be seen in person. Photos do NOT do it justice. I worked at Specialized for 8 years and owned multiple custom and paint sample bikes, and none of them earned one quarter as many compliments as this bike.It is truly gorgeous and I will miss it. Wish I did not have to sell it. This frameset was the first of 200 produced for the USA.
This was the very first produced by the factory. Less than 300 units were made for global markets. Full Dura-Ace from shifters to chain.Only exception is the Ultegra 11-28 cassette. Ultegra cassettes last forever by comparison. Includes a Specialized Powercranks power meter. The same setup used by Bora and Quick-Step.
Wheels are Roval CLX50 with Ceramicspeed bearings and blade spokes. Nothing is faster in all situations. These are the "quiver killer" wheels. I came from prior-generation CLX60s on my Gen1 Venge and these are noticeably faster, smoother, and more stable.Tires are S-Works Turbo Cotton clinchers, with less than 400 miles on them. I was field testing RapidAir tires beforehand. Cockpit is 44cm Aerofly handlebar with 100mm stem.
Also included is a spare 110mm stem. Bar tape is never-produced crimson red HD tape, which is "like new". Computer mount is set up for Wahoo, but I will include spare parts that include Garmin and GoPro.Specialized full carbon S-Works Power 143mm saddle. Dura-Ace drivetrain is "like new" and in perfect condition. Hoods are perfect, derailleurs have zero scratches. I'm trying to add more pictures. Total bike weight is 15.86 pounds. Frame weight is 936 grams. Chainrings are 52/36, cassette is 11/28.
Includes Stix Elite headlight with custom mount, Stix Elite taillight with SWAT saddle mount. In addition to the S-Works Power saddle, I will also includes a 2020 Romin Evo saddle in 143mm width. Romin Evo saddle has plastic base and metal rails.The item "2020 Specialized S-Works Venge 56cm Dura-Ace Di2 power meter CLX50 wheels" is in sale since Thursday, May 14, 2020.
